Getting students up early is sometimes challenging, but when Yoyo doughnuts are on the line, expect a crowd.

Glen Lake Elementary students and their father figures lined the hallway and packed the school cafeteria Thursday, Nov. 10 for the first-ever “Doughnuts and Dads” event. Over 100 dads attended. During the breakfast, students and their dads played educational games and filled out questionnaires and discussed their answers. Principal Jeff Radel said the event was organized as a way for students and their significant male figure to connect and bond. 

“Getting dads in with their kids and interacting with that father figure is important,” Radel said. “It’s open to all our students. And it’s only a half hour, but for kids that’s a long time. It’s also a great way to bring parents in and have them meet one another and meet me."
